India Zimbabwe Cricket News 2005
By and large India have generally made heavy weather of chasing a target and their performance in finals hasn't been helped by having to chase 11 times in the 15 finals they have reached since 2000. In seven of those 11 instances India have had to chase over 260. But the batting woes are not limited to just chasing: of the four times that India have batted first in a final they have scored less than 225 twice.
